a likeable and walkable city but its the widest cities and it freaked me out! so, growing up in chicago and new york you know i had sushi and chinese food and everything cuisine my entire life. i like different people. if i don't have somebody disagree with me once every 5 minutes something is wrong. this neighborhood is like that. the one problem i had never had to face as being supervisor is apathy. i never had a day when people don't care to call me that something's wrong and i want to do something different and new. >> y are lucky in the castro because the resident's association, the merchant's association, we work together effectively. we have a supervisor who is committed to working together with us to accomplish very concrete goals. and so we are very lucky. its an exciting place to live. >> the beauty and convenience offered by district 8's neighborhoods made the neighborhood a highly desirable and expensive place to live. how do the neighborhoods maintain their diversity when sky high housing prices are driving so many out of the district. >> to me housing is the issue of our

francisco summit and taking big steps to a safe green walkable city. and my question, will be city consider more green signs like outside of the city hall. >> fluorescent green. >> yes, we will include that comment, green is a part of it and we talked about the integration of transportation, and have to include what we are facing with climate change. and more and more we are doing work with them as addressing the climate change issues. and that's futures are we won't be able to separate transportation from environmental. >> and i think she meant literally the hall and it's a light green color and we are firming up a city wide policy of a plan of bringing those out in the areas. >> and i took that opportunity to steer back to the green message. >> i am isabell and from the department of public health and working on a child issue and including the children in the thinking and planning, and mr. albert, you said in comments about pedestrians, that we are adults and remember that some of us are not adults and we are going through different stages of development and have our own challenges and ne

one of the most walkable cities but i think any accident, any fatality or serious accident is one too many. over the past few weeks weaver worked on goals for next year related to pedestrian safety and accidents and fatalities. as rewe struggle to set our standards and goals we quickly come to the realization that no pedestrian fatality and serious accidents should occur. so, our goal is zero. there's no acceptable number or percent except zero accidents and pedestrian fatalities. it's a tall order and can't do it alone as mta and need your assistance to get there and again i thank you for coming out today and i thank you for your commitment to making pedestrian safety a priority in this city. have a good summit. [applause] >> thank you mr. ford. i'd like to introduce our next speaker peter jacobson. he'll speak to us on san francisco in context as well as on his work on safety in numbers. peter is a civil engineer with a strong interest in inner connection the between transportation and health. he has published several articles in public health and engineering journals on walking a

franciscoians may be about issues and walkability, the city during the day, basically belongs to the bay area, and how do we think of regional government ideas or spread the message out, particularly given the things, and some suburban stagszs charge for parking and glenn parks doesn't. and we are part of a chain and i would like to know your thoughts of spreading that change network. >> i can actually speak to that briefly, but, part of education aspect is sort of what the metropolitan transportation commission does and reach across county lines and engaging our partners in that. and it's a difficult thing to do, but you know, with all the different transit agencies and jurisdictions in the bay area, it really speaks to education as a major kind of key point. jason? >> yeah, just briefly, i think in general it's a main street phenomena and that the city of san francisco is a cross roads for the bay area, but you can think of it as a small state main street on the state highway and part of that is recognizing what the local priorities are and then determining how much you want to penalize fol

of the city, the plan is to increase and go to a higher housing density in the neighborhood to create a community that is more walkable, environmentally sustainable, and transit oriented. this project is near a major milestone, currently under environmental review analysis with a draft environmental impact report for probable certification by the planning district this fall. we are pleased to take this opportunity to provide you with an overview of the project and we anticipate bringing it to you later this fall after the planning commission certification to adopt and authorize the mta to enter into an injured-agency cooperation agreement. gong gi is going to introduce the presentation and speakers. >> that afternoon, i would like to introduce michael york from the office of economic development to give you an overview and create points on the mural project design. finally, peter alvarez, with staff of mta on transportation elements. we will also mention the successful mellon of solar management, a project sponsor that is also here to answer questions that you have. >> speakers, mr. y
